C820 Frampton Mansell 11 April 1987

Up until the early 1990s, there was a virtually unobstructed view of Frampton Mansell Viaduct from the hillside to the south. C820 (51500, 59093 & 51512) crosses the nine arch structure with the 2A54 09:27 Cheltenham Spa to Swindon service on 11 April 1987. Such is the quality of the original 6x7 Ektachrome slide, that not only can both the set and leading vehicle numbers be clearly read, but also the destination blind, which in true unhelpful 1980s style is showing Gloucester!
